Seal Team

PADI Seal Team logoThe PADI Seal Team is for young divers ages 8 and up who are looking for action-packed fun in a pool doing exciting scuba Aqua Missions. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to dive with flashlights, take digital pictures underwater or float effortlessly like an astronaut? These Aqua Missions wil introduce you to wrecks, navigation, buoyancy, underwater photography, environmental awareness and more.

Here is your chance to do some cool stuff in the pool, meet friends, and share in the adventure of the underwater world. Seal Team provides parents with a structured program that lets their children develop skills, learn about the aquatic environment, and have a lot of fun. This is also an excellent way to introduce kids to scuba diving prior to full Open Water Diver certification.

The best part of the Aqua Missions is how they reinforce safe diving skills while the kids are having fun. PADI Seals get to sample a wide variety of dives.

PADI Seal Team:

  • Helps children learn responsibility
  • Teaches children about the aquatic environment
  • Is a fun pool-only experience
  • Is conducted by certified, trained PADI Professionals

The PADI Seal Team program is broken into two parts:

  • Part one, Aqua Missions 1-5, teaches kids the basics of diving – things like buoyancy control, mask clearing, regulator recovery and so on. After building a solid foundation of scuba skills, kids move on to part two.
  • Part two is full of specialty Aqua Missions such as underwater photography, environmental awareness, safety, and more.

What’s Next?

Upon successful completion of the first five Aqua Missions, students become PADI Seal Team members. After completing 10 additional specialty Aqua Missions, students become Master Seal Team members. When kids are 10 years old, they can take complete the Junior PADI Open Water Diver certification.
